Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC) is a rare, highly aggressive neuroendocrine cutaneous neoplasm with a variable clinical presentation. It is a predominantly dermal-based lesion composed of monotonous small round cells with scanty cytoplasm, often difficult to differentiate from small round cell tumours, metastatic small cell carcinoma, blastic hematologic malignancies, and melanoma.
It is caused by ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, infection with HIV virus, autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis), and certain malignancies like chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or lymphomas, which can profoundly suppress the immune system and may act as a causative agent in MCC. It is also associated with Merkel cell polyomavirus in more than 80% of cases.

Merkel Cell Carcinoma Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
In most people, the first sign of Merkel cell carcinoma is a small bump (nodule) on the skin. This bump is usually firm and appears either skin-coloured or red-purple. It also tends to grow rapidly. Often, there no symptoms associated with the nodule.
Based on the American Joint Committee, MCC is divided into 4 stages, stage I tumour size of ≤2 cm, and stage II >2 cm, stage III as regional nodal disease, and stage IV as metastatic disease.
The incidence of MCC is generally higher in men than in women.
Surgery is the primary treatment option for patients with loco-regional primary MCC. At all stages of MCC, physicians recommend complete excision of the primary tumour, verified by pathologic examination, after excision, if the risk of recurrence to the local lymph nodes is high, it is recommended that the lesion should be treated with a course of radiation therapy. This may destroy any cancer cells that are not detectable by physical exam and can help prevent recurrence of the disease. MCC is generally considered to be a chemotherapy-sensitive tumour, but responses are seldom durable.
Chemotherapy is reserved for the treatment of metastatic MCC (stage IV), and there is a growing opinion that it is mostly indicated to palliate symptoms. Commonly used regimens include. Adjuvant radiation therapy was associated with better outcomes compared with adjuvant chemotherapy.
The choice of treatment depends on the location of the tumour and comorbidities, highlighting the acute unmet need for effective treatment options with good safety and tolerability profile.
